Construction Propping Specialist Reaches New Heights in Australia


Melbourne Australia 18th May 2011 – Preston Hire today announced the introduction of its new heavy capacity propping range to the Victorian and Australia market. Preston Hire as market leader of specialist products to the building and construction industry has for years offered and delivered innovative and very cost effective solutions to the industry. “We are simply responding to market demands of our customers and are delighted to offer this new and innovative product to our customers” said Joe Caprara their General Manager. The newly unveiled prop which he referred to as the “Super 100” has a massive load-bearing capacity of 1000 kN. For those of you who do not clearly understand what that actually equates to in layman’s terms, it means that it has staggering 100 tonne carry capacity.

Preston Hire is well recognised in the Building and Construction Industry for supplying its patented retractable loading platform to the high rise sector of the market. “Our retractable loading platform have saved developers and Industry leaders literally millions of dollars since it was initially introduced and we now hope to do the same with the Super 100 Prop” said Joe.

When Preston Hire initially entered the construction propping market about 2 years ago its range consisted only of the commonly recognised Acrow prop. Since then they introduced both the Super Prop and Peri Prop to their range. The “Super Prop” is their own design prop and has a bearing capacity of almost 6 times greater than that of the standard Acrow prop at similar heights.
